Lion Brand® Hometown USA®

GAUGE:

Rnds 1-3 of Afghan = about 9 in. (23 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Weekend Granny Afghan Reviewed by Julie Judd on 2010-10-07 *****
Such a fun easy pattern! Great for beginners or to teach basic skills to a child who wants to learn crochet. I used the Hometown yarn as recomended and I loved working with it. Thanks Lion Brand!
